I'd take Carpenter over Wells anyday.
and looking at those starters, it doesn't even seem to me like he went like way overboard on the SPs only in the draft.
he just happened to draft well in pitching.
i mean, he could have taken:
1st round - hitter
2nd round - carp (fair pick)
3rd round - oswalt (fair pick)
4th round - czam (fair pick)
5th round - hitter
6th round - pettitte (bust, but maybe will do better with clemens on board)
7th round - myers (fair)
8th round - hitter
9th round - hitter
10th round - haren (steal)
11th round - lowry (not sure yet)
as for penny (steal), and arroyo (steal), he must have either drafted them real late or picked them off FA. and those 2 pitchers are the real reason why his staff is dominating, not because he went overly pitcher heavy in the draft. he did emphasize pitchers a bit more than hitters, but it doesn't look like he went into the draft with the strategy of getting all aces and trading them in the 2nd half for hitters.
